Musical

Hands on a Hardbody

June 2 - 18, 2023

Cantey V. Sutton Theatre (Reserved Seating)


For 10 hard-luck Texans, a new lease on life is so close they can touch it. Under a scorching sun for days on end, armed with nothing but hope, humor and ambition, they’ll fight to keep at least one hand on a brand-new truck in order to win it. In the hilarious, hard-fought contest that is Hands on a Hardbody, only one winner can drive away with the American Dream. This roots-rock musical is inspired by the true events of the acclaimed 1997 documentary of the same name by S.R. Bindler, produced by Kevin Morris and Bindler.

Book by Doug Wright
Lyrics by Amanda Green
Music by Trey Anastasio and Amanda Green

Directed by Brian Westbrook
